Lil Nas X is showing the love to his country counterpart on "Old Town Road" ... by delivering him a seriously stylish whip for that ride down Rodeo.

Shelton notches his first leader since 2013. Blake Shelton scores his 14th No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart, and first since "Sure Be Cool If You Did" led for five weeks in March and April 2013, as "God's Country" rises 2-1 in its eighth week on the airplay-, streaming- and sales-driven survey (dated May 25).

To witness The Damned Things live is to remember why we all fell in love with rock and roll in the first place. The term rockstar is thrown around a lot right now. Much like the term queen, the term rockstar has become synonymous with anyone people view as being exceptional at their craft. That thinking applies to those in music as much as those that exist outside of it, but there was a time not long ago when the term carried far more weight.

They were proof that anyone could find a way to rise above their surrounding,
Adam Lambert is applying his life lessons to his new album. The Grammy-nominated singer opened up about his personal journey in a new interview with Hunger Magazine. “I was lucky enough to grow up in a really open family; they were really supportive of me when I came out at 18,” he shared. “Then I moved to LA and I became an adult and had my share of relationships and adventures.” “Over the next 10 years, I had my own personal journey of identity and relationships,” he continued. “By the time I became a public figure I had already had 10 years to decide the man I wanted to be.” Lambert, 37, is currently working on Velvet, his first solo studio album since 2015's The Original High. “I look back
Welcome to Emerging Country Artist Spotlight, a Billboard series where we highlight an up-and-coming act who is making a splash in the genre. This week's pick is country duo Seaforth, who got their start as solo artists before realizing their combined strengths as singers and songwriters.

Grant Farm is a brotherhood with a song to sing and a story to tell. The upcoming double-vinyl release, Broke In Two (June 14, 2019), delves deep into the human relationship with the mystic, furthering the storylines and characters introduced on Kiss The Ground (2016).

The lead song from their newly-released EP Spinning Top : Between Security & Insecurity, also out on Monday, “Eclipse” was written by GOT7's JB, under his songwriting moniker DEFSOUL, in collaboration with a variety of collaborators. The music video for "Eclipse" switches off between scenes of each member singing on his own in a variety of sets, many of which are full of optical illusions and filmed to depict atypical spatial orientation, before GOT7 all come together to perform in a dark, shifting space, giving the whole thing a bit of a sci-feel. “Eclipse” is GOT7's first single of 2019, and precedes their upcoming Keep Spinning world tour.
